Thanks Roy - try this for starters. Your name has been placed on the mailing list.
This recent talk about Isle of Jura Scots has been great. We have actually been there and it was a wonderful experience! My husband's ancestors were Angus McInnis and Mary Shaw who with 5 little children left Jura and came to America in 1819. They settled in Cumberland Co. NC. Mary died in 1825 and he married Margaret McEachern in 1827. Five children from this union reached adulthood. I am researching their descendants and will post queries from time to time hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have lots of information already.
What none of us know is the identity of Margaret McEachern's father or mother. There were a lot of McEacherns in the area especially in Robeson Co. Can anyone provide any information here?
We also do not know who Mary Shaw's father was . He would also be from Jura.
